The Quietride Tightening Ball Mount with lock provides a secure and sound dampening connection between your vehicle and trailer. This not only improves your towing experience, but also protects your valuable vehicle, trailer, and cargo. Quietrides patently tightening ball mount has two critical components that work together to insure you have the safest and quietest ride the industry has to offer. The threaded, stainless steel hitch pin tightens securely to an internal nut fixed to the inside of the ball mounts inner wall. The ball mount is pulled into the corner of the receiver hitch by the tightening action of the gold wedge and pin. This three dimensional cinch eliminates all of the movement that causes the clanking sound you hear when starting, stopping, and cornering. This insures that all gaps around the ball mount are absorbed leaving your vehicle and equipment damage free and without the annoying clank. The Quietride Tightening Ball Mount system insures the ultimate towing experience.
Today we are going to talk about ball mounts: what they are for, and what they can do for you. As you can see here, we have a variety of different types. And we are going to start off with the most basic type and go all the way up to the most advanced ones with the most adjustability to them. First, we will start off with a typical ball mount. And this configuration here is for a 2-inch receiver and also is a drop version. Basically, it is going to be 4 inches. Also, some models will have a gusset on the bottom, here, to give them a little bit added strength. Some of the typical straight ones will not have this, of course. And, depending on the materials it is made of, some will have the gusset and some will not. One other thing about ball mounts is, we have to talk about rise and drop. Basically, how they measure that is from the top of the shank down to the bottom of the plate here, that is considered the drop. And the rise position is considered this way - from the top of the shank again - well, to the top of the hitch - to the top of this plate here. And that gives you your rise measurement. So, in this case, we actually have from here to here a 4-inch drop, and then from here to here we have approximately about a 2-3/4 inch rise. And those rules apply to any ball mount out there. 1:04
